Hi Bert,

The barrel on this one is marked “model 90”, no 62 marking. I pulled the butt stock and it’s a flat spring.

Best,

Erin

Yes, that is what I expected.  Winchester ran out of Model 90 barrels, and instead grabbed a Model 62/62A barrel an properly rolled stamped it with the “MODEL 90” marking.  On the flip side, there are at least a few dozen Model 62A rifles out there with a Model 90 serial numbered frame, and they usually have a “B” on the end of the serial number.  The total number of Model 90/62/62A permutations that exist during the parts clean-up era is surprising and interesting to say the least.

Another one for you Bert,

Mod. 1906 serial # 727714

There is a B after the serial#

Other than that, it’s all model 1906

Erin,

Interesting! Can you send me a picture of the serial number marking with the “B” ? Does it have a flat-spring hammer, or a coil-spring hammer?

Bert,

My bad, I bought 4 this week and had to go back and review the pics again. I confused it with another(CRS) This one does not have the B. I will let you know on the spring when I have it in hand next week.

Erin,

It will no doubt have a standard flat-spring. The “B” was used when a coil-spring action was made.

Bert, here’s an interesting Model 1890 gallery gun for the survey should it not already be included.  It sold on GB through one of Chayns auctions ( Link: https://www.gunbroker.com/item/785752137 ).  It has the later triangular loading port that was according to one Schwing statement as being authorized in 1938, but has a serial number 821051 that dates to 1929.

Will you be making the Puyallup Gun Show?

James,

This rifle will be a new entry in the survey. The serial number makes it a November 1929 production receiver. The gallery style loading port is interesting, and hard to explain.

I will not be attending the WAC show in Puyallup. My current work schedule is a killer (12:00 PM – 10:30 PM with a 1-hour commute on each end), and it leaves me precious little time with family. I will be relaxing at home all weekend!

Thanks,
Bert

Not sure if you are still looking for survey data but here it is. I have a 62A, Ser.#852439B. Any information you may have on the rifle would be greatly appreciated (DOM, an 06 or 90 Receiver?).

Thanks Steve J

Steve,

Your Winchester Model 62A that was assembled in, or after, November 1940. It has a Model 90 receiver, and most likely with a Model 62A coil-spring hammer.

We are only surveying the serial numbers > 713199.  It was at serial number 713200 when Winchester combined the serialization for the Model 90 and Model 06, dropping the respective “A” and “B” marking below the serial number on the receiver frame.

Hello Irv,

It is a new entry for the survey. Per the Winchester records, it was manufactured in November 1928.

Thanks,

Bert

J rod,

 

Your rifle was produced in May of 1928. I presume it is chambered for S/L/LR? 

 

Thanks for contributing to the survey.

Thanks,

 

SN 842677 fits right in the middle of a small bunch of other 06’s between 842508 and 842761.
